When a new species of cat moves into the city
The new cat has come to town.
It has a name: “Luvvah” and has become the subject of a fierce social media campaign.
The city’s animal welfare officer is taking to Twitter to denounce the new cat and its new owners.
A local council spokesperson told the ABC the cat was being “threatened and harassed” by the local community.
But the cat has already found a new home.

Cat owners say the cat poses a threat to the city’s cats.
Cat owners say they are being threatened and harassed by the city.
But the cat’s owner, a man named Andrew, said he did not want to take action because he was happy with the name.
Andrew said the name of the cat made him feel safer.
“I just don’t want to go out in public, because I think it could be dangerous,” he said.
“If you look at the cat, it’s got a very human face and very cute, and I just don, you know, it doesn’t really matter if it’s a dog or a cat.”
Andrew, who lives in a house in a residential area near the CBD, said the cat looked like it belonged in the street, where it was known to attack people.
His cats are the only pets in the neighbourhood.
He said he felt he had a duty to defend them, but he did so only after hearing of the controversy over the cat.
He said he was disappointed the city had chosen to name the cat “Lovvah”, which he found “offensive” and had no relationship to his cats.
“I didn’t really know what to do with it,” he told the Australian Financial Magazine.
The council spokeswoman told the National newspaper the cat had been living in a backyard near the Central Station building since it was first spotted in September.
She said the animal had been a resident of the backyard for about three months.
It is not yet known if the new owners will keep the cat and will be able to adopt it if they decide to.
Local resident Peter Dutton told the magazine the new owner had told him about the cat for the first time and it was “really, really cute”.
“We didn’t even know it existed until we found out the owner was a local resident and they were looking after it,” Mr Dutton said.
